Explore the British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands are known for their fine white sand, a plethora of unique snorkeling hotspots and some simply incredible diving experiences! Put those activities together with the world famous Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke, BVI specialty dishes including scrumptious lobster and fish plates and warm weather throughout the year and you have the perfect location to enjoy your Caribbean sailing vacation!

The B.V.I. are perfect for those who want to enjoy relaxing vacations as the distances between islands are short so the sailing hours are kept to a minimum. No matter which island(s) you are going to visit, the beautiful vistas and the spectacular swimming spots will enchant you.

World Class Snorkeling

Between Tortola and Norman island stop for swimming and snorkeling at “The Indians”. These four rocky pinnacles that rise and descend roughly 50 ft above and below the water surface form abundant coral gardens which are considered as one of the best shallow dives in the BVIs!

Norman island itself (one of a number of islands reputed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate novel Treasure Island) is a well-known destination because of three water-level caves ideal for snorkeling, and, if one goes deeply enough into the cliffs, for recreating a night dive.

Further afield, while heading towards Jost Van Dyke, the smallest of the main BVI islands, don’t miss to stop at the Guana island for snorkeling at the world famous “Monkey’s point".

Truly Amazing Diving

On your way from Anegada to Scrub Island don’t miss a visit to Dog George, an uninhabited island, located in a smaller sub-group of islands referred to as “The Dogs”. Dog George is mostly known for its diving site “ Bronco Billy”, which gained international fame when it was declared to be the favorite diving site of Jacques Cousteau.

RMS Rhone is one of the most popular legendary wreck dives not only in the Caribbean but worldwide. Located just offshore from Black Point Rock near Salt island in depths of 20 to 80 feet it is easy to reach for scuba diving (and indeed for snorkeling).

A World of Adventure or Relaxation

Explore the mountainous Scrub Island, formed by volcanic activity and just 2.6km long. Scrub island is also known as the “Honey Spot” for tuna and world-record Blue Marlin fishing, a true BVI experience for the adventurous among us.

The island is also a treasure for those who wish to spoil themselves by indulging in the exquisite spa options its resorts can offer. Only 55 slips are available for docking, so make sure you include Scrub Island on your itinerary early!
